James was my cousin. He lived with us for 3 years while his father was overseas serving in WWII. I remember going to his house later where he had an elaborate train set up in a whole room. It was so much fun. He was brilliant and will be missed. Condolences to his wife, Carole, and sons Brad and Craig.
